The BOSS Fire® Transit Box is tested and approved for up to 120 minutes on a larger variety of services than ever before.
Whilst still offering a huge range of mixed services used in high rise apartment and hotel construction for SOU entries, the BOSS Fire® Transit Box is now also suitable for floors and ceilings.

Designed to allow multiple services to all pass through one single fire rated enclosure, the BOSS Fire® Transit Box is the only tested and proven method of fire stopping your services with such simplicity of installation and ease of compliance. Typical projects include apartments, hotels & student accommodation for SOU entries. The BOSS Fire Transit Box can also be used in commercial buildings such as data centres, hospitals and aged care facilities.

The BOSS Fire® Transit Box allows you to group various electrical, plumbing, HVAC+R services all through one easy to use and easily certified box. Because services trades don’t need to treat their services individually, risk is removed from using incorrect products or not having them installed correctly.

  1. Offers up to Industry leading 2 hour fire rating  (FRL -/120/120)
  2. 60min and 90min (FRL -/60/60 and -/90/90) configurations available without any requirement for thermal wraps.
  3. Approved for a wide range of walls, floors & ceilings
  4. Easy and cost effective installation saving up to 90% of installation time.
  5. Acoustic system rated to Rw50 – BCA compliant for apartment construction.

  7. Tested and certified firestopping to AS1530.4-2014 and AS4072.1 for a variety of services.
  8. The BOSS Fire® Transit Box makes AS1851 periodic maintenance inspections simple and reliable.
  9. The unique BrushSeal™ offers future proofing construction design which ensures that services can be added or changed at later stages without any need for new firestopping measures.
  10. Services simply “pass through” with no need to cut individual holes, no is there  any need to cut any inserts or seal any individual service. The intumescent inside expands rapidly closing off the services in the event of a fire.


The BOSS Fire® Transit Box is easily fixed to the underside of concrete soffit before walls are built, or be installed into the wall during construction in a mid wall mount scenario. A range of fixing methods are available including retrofit options using equal angles. Recent additions to the range include retrofit options to concrete floor slabs and also ceiling approvals.

Once the box is installed, services simply “pass through” the box. There is no need to core individual penetrations for each service, or cutting any inserts, nor do you need to seal or treat every individual service. The unique BrushSeal™ allows services to be passed through the box at any time of construction, or even later after a project has been completed making it easier than ever for maintenance contractors and building managers to maintain fire compliance once the building is occupied.


The BOSS Fire® Transit Box contains an advanced high pressure intumescent internally that upon getting exposed to high temperatures, expands to create a superior performing fire seal. Coupled with the unique BOSS Fire® BrushSeal™ that is designed to make the installation and compliance simple, ultimately leading to an industry-leading level of protection.

BOSS Retrofit Fire Collars prevent the spread of fire where PVC and PE plumbing pipes penetrate concrete fire walls and floors. Also for use on PP-R pipes, and polybutylene pipes.

Boss Fire Collars are suitable for on walls and floors. With the addition of the optional ‘click on’ flange oversize holes may be accommodated.

Unlike intumescent assisted mechanical damper type fire collars, Boss Fire Collars contain no fusible links or moving parts to require servicing. As the fire stopping intumescent material in our product is around the outside of the uninterrupted pipe it does not affect the performance of the pipe.

FireMastic-HPE™ is a high pressure exerting fire sealant to surpass all other sealants. Our flagship sealant is tested and approved to change the way firestopping is applied to pipes and penetrations.

Approved to AS1530.4 and EN1366 and offers an FRL of up to -/120/120 in a wide range of penetration systems, outperforming other leading sealants in independent fire tests.

FireMastic-HPE is a graphite-based, thixotropic, one-part acrylic emulsion that is designed to resist the passage of fire and smoke. Under heat, FireMastic-HPE will expand with enough pressure to close PVC pipes and seal around cables and metal pipes to maintain the integrity and insulation performance of the seal, yet without placing any unnecessary pressure on the building substrate.

FireMastic-HPE is supplied in cartridges suitable for caulking via an applicator gun or also available in buckets. It has excellent non-slump properties coupled with the ease of application due to its water-based nature.

The sealant is intended for use in either linear gap seals or services penetrations through walls where fire integrity and insulation needs to be preserved. Under fire conditions the product expands up to 40 times its volume and exerts pressure to the surrounding substrates leading to closure of the penetration. The integrity and insulation is then maintained by the stability of the remaining product char.

The BOSS Thermal Defence System has been developed to prevent the passage of fire and smoke between fire rated compartments where service penetrations exist, such as cables, cable trays and pipe work.

The BOSS Thermal Defence System consists of 2 elements:

1. Thermal Defence Wrap (TDW) installed around the penetrating services,

2. And an aperture seal of either BOSS FireMortar & Bulkhead Batts or BOSS S-line FirePillows for the wall apertures.

The TDW is designed to allow movement within the services, maintain necessary insulation on services and prevent temperature rise of services throughout a fire. At normal temperatures, the TDW remains flexible to permit thermal and mechanical movement of the pipes and cables.

Thermal Defence Wrap is a sheathed woven intumescent technology of bio-soluble vitreous material, graphite and flexible organic binders. It will activate in a fire to expand
